Police Blotter is public information | During this week’s Right-to-Know Webinar, it was specifically noted that this information is open for public consumption. Police reporting according to Section 708 (b) (16) of the Right-To-Know Law allows agencies to withhold records “relating to or resulting in a criminal investigation” However, Section 708(b)(16) specifically does not apply to “information contained in a police blotter” as that term is defined in Criminal History Record Information Act (CHRIA).  In other words, police blotter information – i.e., “A chronological listing of arrests, usually documented contemporaneous with the incident, which
may include, but is not limited to, the name and address of the individual charged and the alleged offenses.” – is public.
